What is Mythmoot VII?

Mythmoot VII, with the theme of “Defying and Defining Darkness,” combines an academic conference, creative writing meet-up, and fan convention for a unique experience. Here at Mythmoot, we have room for serious scholarship in fields such as science fiction, high fantasy, horror, gothic, mythology, children’s literature, folklore.. .the list goes on. We also appreciate less academic, but no less enthusiastic, pursuits of all the above—such as demonstrations of how to knit the best fake candle ever, presentations theorizing the exact recipe for Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder, or papers dissecting the cultural background of Baron Harkonnen!

Bernhard Tauchnitz's Collection of British and American Authors series, initiated in 1841, was not only a successful entrepreneurial eneavour but also a milestone in the history of print culture. The Leipzig-based publisher Tauchnitz, renowned all over the world for his series of affordable pocket books in English, eventually produced more than 5000 volumes over the next 100 years. The cultural and literary repercussions of this unique achievement have been far-reaching since the late 19th century.

’Cause in London Town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

—The Rolling Stones, 1968 

Mick Jagger’s words above can sometimes feel axiomatic.  London has an outwardly less impressive revolutionary tradition to call upon than many of its closest neighbours, most obviously Paris.  This is to say, of course, that history is political: if the past seems quiet, what hope for remaking the future?

Reflecting/Reflected Modernity: Sites of Interface between the Occidental and the Oriental

Call for Papers

 

‘Modernity’ tends to be used, within the humanities, to refer to something seemingly exclusively Western. Within the canonical histories of modernity, especially in literature studies and the discipline of history of art, ‘Western’ countries are seen as the instigators of what we now see as artistic and cultural modernism. ‘Modernity’, however, was not created in isolation within Western spheres. It came into existence through an intercultural exchange and reciprocal relationship between ‘East’ and ‘West’.

Vergil’s Aeneid is, of course, a longtime standard of the liberal arts curriculum. However, it has seen revived interest outside the academy. Since 2017, Vergil’s epic has featured in articles in the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Yorker. All three articles argue that the Aeneid speaks as much to modernity as it does to antiquity. Mendelsohn’s New Yorker piece put it best, writing,
